Packaged by E W King and Co Ltd, of Colchester, in partnership with Kings Seeds Packet contains approximately 1200 seeds Description Turnips are fast growing root vegetables which add a different flavour grated raw in salads, added to casseroles or served as a separate vegetable completely. When pulled young, they are a far cry from the woody, sad examples that can often be seen in the supermarkets today. Snowball have pure white globe shaped roots with excellent sweet and juicy flavoured white flesh making them the popular choice for spring sowing and successional use. The tops can also be used as tasty greens. Seed Count: 1200 WHEN TO SOW March to June WHERE TO SOW Sow direct in the growing site 1.5cm (3/4") deep in rows 30-45cm (12"-18") apart.

If possible leave until size of a golf ball and pull alternate plants to maximise the crop. MATURITY Late June to September HANDY TIP The smaller they are when pulled, the sweeter they are. Sow successionally for a steady supply of young roots over a long period. NUTRITIONAL VALUE High in fibre.
